The Crater Chapter
The Crater Chapter consists of USAWOA members in the Eastern Region of Virginia and those who are "at-large" throughout the United States. The chapter adheres to the USAWOA principles of "Professionalism, Representation, and Recognition" for the benefit of active Army, National Guard, Army Reserve, and retired Army Warrant Officers who work/reside in the Fort Lee/Petersburg Virginia area.
The Crater Chapter meets at the Warrant Officer Hut The Hut (Apt E, Bldg 10000) C Ave. on Fort Lee. Please view our Chapter "Events" web page for specific information on Chapter meetings. The chapter also participates in Warrant Officer Professional Development (WOPD) Seminars, Community Service Projects, and hosts specific events (check the chapter calendar for specific dates).
Provide a forum for continued professional development for Chapter Warrant Officers while fostering an environment to mentor new Warrant Officers. Provide a foundation for Camradeship and 'Espirit de Corps' amongst Chapter Warrant Officers. Serve as active participants in the community by providing volunteer services and financial assistance where needed.
Crater Chapter History
An unofficial association of local Warrant Officers at Fort Lee has been meeting and supporting the community since 1969 as authorized by the Commandant of the Quartermaster Center and School. In 1974, Chapter President CW3 (Ret) R. M. Williamson, Jr., requested official recognition from the United States Army Warrant Officers Association and the Crater Chapter was chartered.
